Hello! Usher Raymond is a very special cat to me, I'm so excited to get to share some of his story. During my junior year of college I had received a phone call from a friend, a box of kittens had been dropped off at his work and they needed homes quick. Something inside me said go for it, little did I know these babies where about 3 weeks old and lacked teeth! I bottle fed Usher for what seemed like the longest time, and my roommate also got one of ushers brothers and did the same. Usher over the years had shown skin issues and the vets where I lived could not pin point what was going on. Finally after I graduated college and got my career rolling I took him to a cat specialist. They diagnosed him with eisophilic granuloma, which affects mostly his face paws and hind legs. We've tried hypoallergenic food, and haven't noticed much difference in his allergic reactions to some unknown source. The only thing that helps are cortisone shots from his vet but that's an after the fact remedy. Allergy testing may be in the future. I love my baby boy, and I really don't know how I would have gotten through college with out him. He is my fur child, and he has a furry sister now Willow Jade.
